Simple Blueberry Muffins
It’s official. Chocolate and I have broken off our long term relationship. We’ve had a bumpy one. A really messy one you could say. Love-Hate. We break up then get back together in a very passionate way. Make up sex style. I’m disappointed in myself for just saying that. Not really. But for reals, it’s over this time. For at least 5 weeks. Jason bet me $3 that I couldn’t resist chocolate for 5 weeks, until after the CrossFit Open, so I must prove him wrong. He will be wrong.
Wanna know what I did this Saturday night? It was pretty epic so get ready. I ate dinner with my parents and uncle, we cooked fajitas, then talked about child birth because my uncle just had a kid, I mostly talked about how gross it is, then I went home. Don’t worry, this is where sh*t gets real. I dyed my hair (because my natural color is blonde so I have to dye it every 2 weeks) then put on a yeast face mask and watched youtube videos. Yep. I sat on my couch with my glossy hair slicked back, a face mask hardening my skin that smelled like rising bread, in a huge baggy sweatshirt and shorts with a hole in the butt cheek. What am I doing with my life.
Oh wait, I also made a dessert that failed. Wish you could understand the smells that filled my house that fine Saturday night. I’m pretty sure I was high. High school all over again. Kidding. Slightly.
I also cried during a muscle up wod. I had 20 to do and finished 19, failed 6x on the 20th one, tore my hands, then cried in disappointment. I also kicked the wall and said ‘f*ck you’ loudly. Real mature Juli, real mature. I hate you muscle ups. I.HATE.YOU.
What’s up with people wearing track suits? So weird.
Ryan Gosling is adorable. I wish he would take me on a date that included him falling in love with me. And smiling at me. A lot. It’s not that much to ask people.Print
Simple Blueberry Muffins
- Yield: 8-10 1x
- 1 cup almond butter
- 1 cup almond meal/almond flour
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. If you’re good at baking, you’ll know to mix the dry then the wet ingredients then mix together, but I do all the ingredients together and it works out just fine.
- Place ingredients into 8-10 silicone muffin cups in a muffin tin. Or you can use muffin tin paper liners.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes. Just keep an eye on it, they will puff up and look adorable.
- Eat them and be happy. And merry.

19 muscle ups are 19 more than I can do…I think thats pretty awesome, I’m hoping one day I can do one.
You will be able to Stef!
Also 19 more than me! Good gracious that’s awesome…yet I also feel the pain of not being able to finish. You’re kicking ass, woman!
Haha I wish Stephanie! Thank u though!
Does this mean I can have your share of chocolate for the next 5 weeks?
Hells yeah Jen!!
I love that you’re so honest about not feeling awesome all of the time.
A couple of friends and I did Whole30 in January and made up a couple of Gosling meme things to get us through, hope you like.
Lol got a good laugh out of those Andrea! I don’t feel awesome most of the time haha
I totally fell off the wagon after the 30, by the way. Sad. Need to reset my brain.
Yes! My husband grew up above the Arctic Circle, so he always had blueberry muffins (berries from the tundra!) growing up. Thanks for the recipe- I’m about to blow his mind with it when he comes home from work next week!
Hope you like them Tiffany!
Things that need to be said:
1. I was disturbed about the child birth sentence and almost skipped the whole paragraph. Instead I grew a pair (figuratively), and read on to discover your best qualities. Hair dying, yeast face mask wearing, youtube watching, paleo chef girl-r-dee, crossfitter. I can’t wait to see who your soulmate is.
2. Muscle ups were created for 5’0 gymnasts weighing in at a whopping 110#. Not athletically inclined average to above average women. It’s just not meant for us 5’6+ girls. That’s like saying you hate chocolate because it doesn’t fit in your dietary description. And that’s not why you hate it.
3. Oh, and the muffins…send them east. Better yet bring them to me.
I need to send you muffins AND nut butters Sam!
I almost cry A LOT during my WODS, well, lately, with my raging hormones it’s been what I’d consider ‘a lot’…my first time experiencing that was my 2nd run at Helen, fuck. I fucking HATE thrusters, so much.
Did these rise like that in the oven or did you mound them up? I find that almond flour stuff never rises, just hardens into whatever shape you mold it…
<3 u JB.
Yeah I was super surprised when they puffed up how they did! Those pictures are of just 1 muffin, no stacking involved.
Dumb question but is almond meal the same as almond flour?
Pretty much Heide, very small difference between them, but they cook the same!
Juli, I found your blog over the weekend, thanks to a Pinterest post.
Let me just start by saying, I think you are quite hilarious! I love your sense of humor! I just recently started the Paleo lifestyle, last week, yep REAL recent! So far, so good, lets just say that I haven’t killed anybody yet, which I though was perhaps a possibility because I couldn’t have my oats in the morning. Plus, I really wanted to shovel all the girl scout cookies I just recently bought down my gullet, but that’s a whole other story! I resisted the temptation. Those darn girl scouts! Just sayin……
I’m new to Crossfit as well! I have a whole lot of new stuff going on my life I guess you would say! I tried it once a few ago, sipped the kool-aid and haven’t looked back! I’m LOVING it! I previously worked out 5-6 days a week, mainly focusing on weight training and small doses of HIIT cardio, lord I hate cardio! I was getting burnt out and needed a change. Crossfit has refueled my fire! Yee haw!
Anyway, enough about me! Just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for this awesome blog, always making me laugh and for these awesome recipes! Now that I know I can make blueberry muffins and still eat Paleo, my life is pretty much complete!
PS: Could I use Almond Flour in place of the Almond Meal in this recipe? I have a big honkin bag in my fridge and would like to use it before it looses it’s freshness. I made apple protein muffins with it previously, let’s just say they were so bad my dog wouldn’t eat them. Yep, that bad! SOOOOO incredibly dry, so needless to say I’ve been skeered to use the Almond Flour again. lol Let me know what you think.
Welcome to the Paleo and CrossFit community Julie! I hope you’re cool with the best chapter of your life!! Thanks for checking out my blog!!
And yes you can use almond meal or almond flour in the recipe, they are pretty close to each other in the almond family.
Okay, I love you! Officially. I was totally thinking of berry muffins this morning. Didn’t have a recipe. Did a berry crumble instead. It rocked..but not a muffin.
Psyched that you posted this today! Do you think unsweetened applesauce could be substituted for the honey?
Yeah berry crumble definitely still sounds amazing! I’m not sure if the applesauce would make it too heavy…but its worth a try!
20 muscle ups?! You rock that’s totally impressive. I wasn’t feeling like going to crossfit today but you just got me motivated to get out the door!
Glad I could motivate you Katie!! Kill it!
those are super fluffy, and blueberries are cheap right now. i dropped a quart of rasperries all over the check out line on Saturday, and i thought to myself ‘jeez i am glad those weren’t the blueberries, because they would be out of control rolling.’
sweet potato brownies=delish. they were the first choco i had since Jan15. not that i was counting. for $3 you can do it. then use that $3 to buy chocolate.
also, during your next youtube sesh you have to watch ‘my drunk kitchen’. you will thank me.
I’ll check it out Malsut! And glad you liked the recipes :):)
Another win…I thought you said you couldn’t bake…pfft
…while that saturday night of yours does sound eventful, you should spend next saturday night watching ghost rider…he’s badass like the honey badger and since you are also honey badger badass, you should see it…who doesn’t love super heroes who suck souls…just sayin 🙂
Lol that sounds like the weirdest show on earth, but i’ll try it just for you Rob
I’m a comic book nerd Juli, its Ghostrider…not a chick flick, but killer action scenes and good for some laughs, not exactly a plot driven emotional film. I will be expecting you to prove you are awesome when the next Dark Night comes out 🙂
Oh Rob, ohhh Rob
Awesome recipe! My son (4 years old) is totally into eating Paleo these days after reading Sarah Fragoso’s new “Paleo Pals” cookbook. We made your blueberry muffins this morning and he ate THREE.
That’s freaking awesome Brianne!!
I just got my copy of Paleo Pals in the mail from Amazon today. I hope it’s enough to convince my 4year old to make the switch! Keep your fingers crossed for me! Glad it worked for yours! 🙂
I’ve never seen that book, hope it works!!
You had me at muffins!! Just made these and they are awesome!!
YAY! Glad you liked them Jenni!
just found your website the other day, and wanted to try this recipe since it seemed pretty foolproof (i’m not that great in the kitchen domain). substituted coconut flour instead of almond flour since the whole foods near me ran out of almond flour/meal. still taste great! the tang of the blueberry cuts through the sweetness of the honey. great for a quick, on-the-go breakfast 🙂
Glad they still turned out well Ann!
As soon as I finish my Whole30 (9 more days!) I am so making these, they look amazing and I’m really surprised you got them to rise like that, everything I’ve cooked with almond flour has been flat!
Well done on the muscle-ups, I struggle with pull-ups! 🙂
These definitey aren’t flat Emma! Hope you like them once you can try them!
Oh. Em. Gee. This are SO YUM. Yep, I made them at 10pm, and they are really great. Thanks! Keep it up!
Haha that’s freaking awesome Ashley! Muffins at night are way better than the morning
Great recipe for simple blueberry muffins. I bet this would make a great breakfast treat on the weekends.
Fo sho Nick, fo sho
I can’t wait to make these.
Every. Single. Filthy Fifty I do, I throw my effing jump rope. Or when my shoe laces come untied, I throw a fit…legit tantrum. I’m mature in the gym too.
Good luck in the Open!
Lol I HATE that feeling. soooooo frustrating
Hi..I am new to eating Paleo and found your blog by browsing. I am trying out your recipes and so far… PaleOMG is right!! These Blueberry Muffins are awesome!! Also just made your Crockpot Mexican Chicken over Cilantro Lime “Rice” and both my husband and I are like “WOW!” This is the best tasting food I have eaten in years. Thank you so much for convincing me this is the way to eat forever!!
Glad the muffins turned out well Sandy!!
oh, if i wasn’t on day 9 of a whole30… 21 f*ing days left… i’d scarf the dozen. want want want.
i registered for the open knowing full well it will be a major fail… whatevs. good luck with yours!
Kill it Kimberly! you are going to surprise yourself, i just know it!
What’s the nutritional value of the blueberry muffins including carbs I love them
Claramae, you can plug the recipe into a nutritional calculator to find that info out asap!
Of course this gets posted the day after you give up chocolate. MDA of course recommends moderation, but seems like you might be doing yourself a disservice giving it up completely:
Lol you would show me that Tom, YOU WOULD
Pffft get in line Juli, I’m a hetero man & I’d love Ryan Gosling to take me out & smile at me lots too….but it aint gonna happen
As for the chocolate, you’re a fool chocolate told me he still loves you & you will be back together sooner than you know
Tell me you’re at least still seeing his best friend cacao powder?
Neither. I’m officially alone. forever.
Thats crazy talk plain & simple Juli
Making these tonight! I added a touch of coconut flour to stretch it to 12 muffins and used blackberries & whole cranberries because I had them on hand. If the muffins are as good as the batter… I can’t wait!
Hope they turned out well Kristen!
Just made these muffins. I needed some of that coconut oil so I went to whole foods..looking around…thinking..almond butter???..like regular butter?..we bought almond butter the other day..looked like peanut butter..ahhh that is almond butter..hello..came out awesome..made another batch of sweet potato brownies..and I just saw you put up that you just made beef enchiladas ..I just made beer enchiladas for dinner tonight..my wife loves your recipes and so do all her crossfit going work mates.cheers
That’s awesome Tim! Tell her thank you!!
Delish! Yours came out far more adorbs as I filled the cups too much but they tasted great and I will share the recipe with others.
Squirrel: I totally bought Enjoy Life choco chips and probably will pay dearly (later) for eating too many. It’s pretty awesome how great the food is these days that has far fewer ingredients/chemicals. Loving it and it’s worth it to pay a bit more for better stuff.
Keep up the great blog!
Totally worth the extra money, I would much rather pay more for good tasting food
Made these today! YUM!
I made these today for my carb load…holy hell, whole batch lasted like 2 hours.
Lol glad you liked them 🙂
Interesting thing to note. Before i started eating paleo/primal, the day after a carb load i was completely useless. That whole batch has to be like 400g of CHO, no ill effects this morning. Yet, I still have the full muscles, super tight and dry feeling, pretty sweet.
That’s pretty sweet Rob. Badass 🙂
First off, I rated this post- oh dear, you made me smile! I’m gonna try this recipe because of that special ‘shredded coconut’ ingredient and because I trust your recipe.
Hope you like it!!
This is my first attempt at baking since going paleo, the muffins were great! thank you!!!
Glad you liked them Amy!! Got another baked good coming on the website next week! Look out for it!
Just awesome. All four of them that I just ate. Thank you for a muffin recipe!
Glad you liked them Meredith!
Hi there. I just came across your site and so far I like what I see! I have been living a paleo lifestyle for a month while on a cleanse and hope to keep it going! At the moment I have these in the oven, and I am amazed how much they have risen! Oh, timer is beeping, better get back and check them out!
Hope you liked them Christine!
Your muffins came out much prettier than mine~they puffed up then sunk in the middle. BUT – that doesn’t matter, they are delicious! Started paleo diet 3 weeks ago today and really loving it – also enjoy your blog! Thanks!!
Oh boo!! Glad they still tasted good at least!
Juli – This is my first stop to your site, and you just cracked me up. My kind of humor, girl! Oh, and I would totally kick the wall and say F*** it if I got 19/20 MU’s! As a matter of fact, I think I have done that!! HAHA, not to muscle up’s though, cause I’m not badass enough (YET) to do ’em!!
You’ll get them Michelle, can’t wait to hear from you when you do!!
I have always been a blueberry muffin lover and these are amazing! Thanks for sharing! Now to lock them down so I am not tempted to eat them all right now!
They are pretty good compared to regular blueberry muffins huh? Not quiiiite as good, but close haha
Pretty dang close indeed!
I recently discovered your website and even though I’m not a cook or a baker I want to make almost everything on here! I thought I would start with these muffins, but I can’t find almond flour/meal anywhere. Can I sub in coconut flour?
If you use coconut flour, I’m not sure it will have the same effect. Coconut flour is pretty dense and you may end up with pretty dry muffins. Try using more almond butter and half or even a third of coconut flour
These turned out so delicious! I filled them up waaay too much but they still taste amazing. i am having so much fun trying all your recipes. I haven’t been disappointed yet!
Glad you are liking all the recipes Jenna!
We have only been eating strict Paleo for a few months now but have tried a few different muffin recipes *I have 3 kids and they have always enjoyed blueberry muffins.
This has been the best of the 3 we have tried.
Thanks so much–finding great recipes like this one help make the switch much easier, especially for the little ones!!
That’s great to hear Lindsey, glad I’m helping the switch!!
So YUMMY. PaleOMG is so perfect. Had to modify slightly due to what I had on hand. Used regular organic hpney and sweetened coconut. But still over 80% paleo (which is my goal 80% 100% of the time). Super good. Tomorrow I hope to try the French Toast….
BTW, childbirth might be a bit messy but it’s an amazing empowering experience and a great way to test your strength and tap into that “paleolithic” instinct rather that relying on what the over processed modern world claims to be right and healthy.
Thanks for your site. Love, A CrossFitting, HomeBirther 🙂
Glad you liked it Jen!!
Freakin’ LOVED these! I just recently went paleo over the last month, so this was a much needed treat for me! Thanks for all of your wonderfully hysterical posts 🙂
That’s awesome Sarah!! Glad you liked them 🙂
my love for you grows leaps and bounds with every post! these muffins are DIVINE!! (though mine sunk in the middle too, but who cares how they look when they’re this delicious and don’t stick around the house long?!)
I’ve been Paleo for a year, but just (FINALLY) made the leap with my 4 year old 3 weeks ago. I’ve had the hardest time gettin her to eat enough FAT. she plowed her way through these muffins before I could blink….think I’ll keep these on hands AT. ALL. TIMES. for awhile!
once again- you’re the hero!!
Perfect Breanna, glad you both liked them!! Thanks for your support!
Made these last night and oh my heaven! They are complete paleo mouthgasam worthy 🙂 Didn’t have blueberries so I used strawberries instead and they were delish! Can’t wait to make more and gift them to my paleo family friends
Glad you liked them Mikkayla!!
I made these this morning….holy crap they are delicious! I divided the mixture in half (pre-blueberry) added blueberry to one half and Enjoy LIfe chocolate chips to the other. Both types turned out A-MAZING. Next time I might mash some bananas and add those in as well.
Oooo I’m very jealous right now. I can’t wait to gorge my face with chocolate
Hi there! I made these this afternoon and, like everyone else has been saying, they are delicious. Paleo baking is a little different from all the other baking I’ve ever done but I’m learning – like with these: next time, I won’t fill them so full as they overflowed big time. That baking soda is what does it. I also added a few blueberries and a little more coconut on the tops before they went into the oven. However, even my husband loves them so these will become a regular in our house! Oh – and for the commenter who can’t find almond flour/meal, if she has a Trader Joe’s somewhere near her, they carry it and it’s generally cheaper than any other place you can find it. On a personal note, I’ve now been doing crossfit for about a month and still wonder some days what I’ve gotten myself in to 🙂 Thanks for the awesome recipe!
Glad you liked it GABeth!! Keep working hard in the gym! If you’re not scared, it’s too easy 😉
Just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and am hooked!! I know that grains don’t work for me, I keep trying to make them work but in the process put on lots of weight. So am back to trying to figure out what to eat, and wow you have shown me that I can eat. This is the first recipe of yours that I tried and loved them – in fact my whole family loved them, and so easy to make!! Am now making a grocery list for other recipes. Thank you and look forward to waking up in the morning to find your email in my inbox!!!
I just made these, doubling the blueberries and they turned out wonderfully! Thank you sooo much for sharing the recipe 😀
That’s awesome, glad you liked it Amber!
Hey! So I just found your blog via Health-Bent. Pretty stoked. Lots of your recipes are right up my picky paleo 18 month old 🙂 just put your blueberry muffins in the oven and cannot wait to surprise my daughter in the morning!
Glad you like the website!
…right up my picky paleo 18 month old’s *ALLEY* 🙂 …
hope they like it!
I love these muffins. I just keep making them! I saved a little batter sans blueberries and put chocolate chips in them… then made mini muffins. It was like a muffie from Panera!
I had some reservations about using so much almond butter… couldn’t help but fall into old habits and think about all the fat in these things. But then I realized that I feel ten times better than I used to. I eat more fat in one day than I used to in an entire week. I’m really ok with it. Thanks, Juli!
Lol I am right there with you Leah, glad you liked the muffins!
Wow – I’m addicted to your site and your witty prose girl! I just started crossfit in March and decided to try Paleo April. Your recipe was first on my list thanks to a rec from a fellow crossfitter. Delicious. My 5 year old niece chowed one down and they were the perfect b-fast prior to snowboarding. Can’t wait to try a couple more recipes (and read your hilarious encounters of course!).
Thanks so much Megan!! Hope you come back and try even more recipes!
Another win from PaleOMG! you are freaking awesome. I had to make a few substitutions in this recipe because I went clothes shopping instead of grocery shopping yesterday. I’m not sure how it happened, but I got 14 muffins from this recipe…and I filled the muffin cups almost to the top! hoooooraaaaay! I didn’t have any coconut, so I used a little extra almond meal. I didn’t have enough almond butter, so I used a half cup of almond butter and a half cup pureed pumpkin. Oh and my blueberries were frozen, so I used a whole cup, microwaved them, and drained off the extra juice. Amazing.
These were so freaking yummy! my boyfriend could not get enough, he seriously ate 6 for breakfast. I had to take them away from him!
These took me like 2 minutes to whip up and 30 seconds to inhale.. was my saving grace after a week off tooo many eggs for breakfast!!! Thank you!
I made these muffins yesterday and they are, hands down, the best paleo muffins I’ve made. My 4 and 2 years old girls gobbled them all up. Thanks!
Deliciousness! I am so excited to try more of your recipes =)
I made these and they are THE BOMB!! My friends who are not Paleo loved them too. I am making another batch tomorrow. THANKS!!
OH and I forgot to rate them, 5 stars for sure.
These are the best Paleo blueberry muffins I have every made. Thanks for the recipe.
Thanks for posting this recipe. I made them and OMG they were awesome!! I’ll be trying more of your amazing recipes soon!
Awesome recipe! We make these at least once a week!
Hey! I made these tonight, because.. well.. I LOVE blueberry muffins and I dont care what time of day it is. It’s like 9 and I’m gunna go get me one. I hope they are good, they dont look as light as yours. we’ll see!!
These are freaking amazing! Juli, I love ur recipes!
True or False: I can freeze these for later?
Loving your recipes! I’m new to this whole paleo club, eating to treat my PCOS…but I am LOVING IT! I feel like a million bucks =)
I’m sure you could Laur!
I froze mine just fine 🙂
what a wonderful treat.
so…..after eighteen months of paleo and many weekly WOD’s, i found your awesome site.
my teenage kids were intrigued albeit they usually don’t eat anything that doesn’t have sugar. they decided to take on the role of chefs and made these muffins.
after all this time away from corn–blueberry–morning glory muffins and bagels, it was a gratifying experience to indulge in these muffins. so easy to make, unbelievably tasty.
they have now replaced my eggs or banana on almond butter breakfast.
thanks so much—and i’m now a true fan of your site.
come do a WOD in NYC when you’re in the big apple.
i was having a SERIOUS blueberry pancake craving when i came across these little jems…they are amazing! i haven’t been livin the paleo lifestyle for very long and am always skeptical with paleo baked goods but DAMN these definitely proved me wrong..thank you for sharing all of your goodies with us!
I wanted to do something with the little wild blackberries I picked with my daughter. So happy I found your recipe. I had to make a few substitutions based on what we had in the house – about 1/4 a cup of natural applesauce in place of 1/4 cup of almond butter, cause we ran out, blackberries instead of blueberries, and coconut nectar instead of honey. But they were awesome!
These are delicious – instead of shredded coconut, I used ground flaxseeds & they turned out great. So moist and yummy. I’ll be using chocolate chips instead of blueberries for my next batch! A hit with the BF too which is always a feat 🙂
Yummy! I added 1/2 tsp ginger and zest of one orange, oh and an accidental 1 tsp of baking powder instead of half. They came out perfect. Thanks!
Whaaat? These are amazing little devils! I am not a sweet fan so these hit the spot without being overly sweet. Love, Love Love them!!! Thank you!
Mine weren’t as adorable but still yummy!!
Made these for the first time last night, they came out perfect and looked beautiful. With the amount of honey, I thought they would be much sweeter and so glad they weren’t. Since I am not really a blueberry fan, I will make these w/raspberries next time.
I made these for my brother in Afghanistan. Food sucks over there. He will love these. Going to share on my website too.
These muffins were amazing, and you are hilarious! I missed muffins… thank you soooooo much.
This has been my favorite Paleo remake of Blueberry Muffins! I also added a bit of vanilla to mine! MMMMmmmm. Love em!
Do you have the nutritional facts on these?
no ma’am. i don’t ever look at that kind of stuff.
There’s a few websites that will help you calculate the calories… I usually use http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator However…now that I’ve started Paleo, I REALLY don’t want to know the nutritional info. As long as it contains ‘good’ ingredients, that’s enough for me. These might make me sad knowing the calorie/fat content 🙂
I just made these and am in LOVE with them! My first ‘dessert’ since going Paleo a month ago. I’ve been desperately craving something sweet and these hit the spot! I got 12 fairly big muffins out of the recipe, and used 1 cup blueberries instead of 1/2 a cup b/c it just didn’t seem like enough. Perfect!
YUM! I just recently found this website beacsue I was looking for a Paleo meal plan. Let me just tell you I’ve cooked more in the past few weeks than I think I have my whole life. NOT KIDDING. Your recipes are great and your blog is very entertaining. I’m so excited that I can eat Paleo and enjoy it! I’ve been blabbing about this site to all my friends too. You’re going to be a star girl. You have “IT”, not that I’m a talent agent, but you do.
Just tried baking these muffins yesterday, and they are glorious. This is my first attempt at paleo baking (I was never big on baked goods even before paleo), and these are wonderful. I used coconut flour instead of shredded coconut (because I didn’t have any shredded), and it was just fine.
These muffins were awesome! My 13 mos old twin girls gobbled them up…as did I!
My 13 mos old twin girls gobbled these up…as did I! They are awesome!
I made these for breakfast this morning for something different. They were fantastic! My kids, 5 &3, ate 3 and would haven’t eaten more if I would have let them. I didn’t have shredded coconut so I shredded a small gala apple. Turned out great. Thank you so much for your great recipes. You have inspired me to create my own recipes. I made BLT egg cups the other morning. Yumm.
That was supposed to be 5 stars. Not sure happened.
These were so cute and tasty, and I was so glad when they actually puffed up! Usually I can’t bake anything right. 😉
However I used only 2/3 cup of almond butter instead of the whole cup, because I wanted to tone down the calories a bit. They turned out amazing anyway!
Okay these were awesome. The batter alone! Sigh. My 2 and 7 year old took them off the counter!!!! Awesome!!!!
OMG! Though, I had to add a whole cup of blueberries, as that is what is in one of those small clamshells…made these before leaving for my Saturday WOD…and couldn’t stop thinking about them on the way home! Absolutely delish! I don’t trust myself, so I froze most of them, and left two in the fridge (I managed to get a whole dozen out of the recipe using tin baking cups). Thanks for all of your recipes, videos included, you rock! Can I give the recipe 10 Stars instead? 🙂
I just made these and am in love/awe…AMAZING! I can’t wait to freeze them for future breakfasts/snacks. Thanks!
Can I use soy nut butter instead of almond butter?
you definitely could! not a paleo option but you are more than welcome to!
I have a birthday coming up and I was thinking about altering this recipe to make a birthday cake. I was thinking replacing the blueberries with raspberries, adding some lemon zest and topping it with a lemon/honey glaze. What are your thoughts? Any suggestions?
I made the muffins a while back and they were amazing, I loved the way they puffed up.
These blueberry muffins were Awesome! I can’t wait to try more of your recipes. I love your site…you’re hilarious!
These were da BOMB!!!!!! A peanut butter cookie with blueberries!
I finally got around to making these. Uh-mazing!!! I’ve been looking for something to have on hand for post workout of when I want a muffin. These are perfect.
Thank you for your experimenting and posting tasty recipes for all of us to make!
Just made these except I substituted fresh strawberries (bc I needed to use them up!) and added some fresh unsweetened coconut and some raw pepita seeds. Also, didn’t have quite enough honey so I had to supplement with blue agave. The result??? The most perfect Paleo muffins I’ve made … and I’ve made a LOT of muffins searching for a good one.
Gorgeous, golden brown and didn’t stick at all!!!
You have provided me with my new fav basic muffin recipe!!
Just wanted to say THANKS and keep up the good cooking!
There in he oven now, cannot wait!!!
Hey! I just found your blog and this recipe while searching for a quick muffin recipe. I’m new to the paleo lifestyle and I’ve been searching for a recipe like this for a while. I just pulled these muffins out of the oven and they are delicious! I didn’t put the blueberries in, and added vanilla extract. Nonetheless they are DELICIOUS. THank you!!!
Awesome recipe! Didn’t have any blueberries on hand so substituted with frozen raspberries. Extremely tasty and moist (sorry – can’t think of any other word) compared with other paleo muffins I’ve tried that can be a little dry. Loving your blog!
these are amazing!! after eating four, my 4-yr snuck 3 more when i wasn’t looking!! lol. i may have to hide the rest so mommy can have them. thanks for posting. i reblogged about them on my blog.
My husband and I loooooved these. The texture was like a ‘real’ muffin and the flavor was scrumptious, we will definitely make them again. We used frozen (thawed) blueberries and homemade almond butter. Thank u for your recipes, you do a fantastic job!
Making these right now as part of the “Alyssa attempts to convince her boyfriend to go paleo with her.” Very excited.
Love, Love, Love your recipes! I make them as after WOD snacks for our box and everyone raves about them…so thanks : )
I’m sure you’re aware, but I’ve found other websites using your recipes/photos and claiming as their own….do you all share between one another?
If they don’t link back to me, they’re just assholes. Or have no common sense. Which is most likely what’s happening
OMG!!! It tasted damn good!!!! Way to go!!!!!
Guess what? I brought two muffins for my friends. they loved it!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I will make more muffins for holiday.
These were amazing! Thank you!!!!
You are frickin hilarious. The muffins were pretty good too! I also hate muscle ups, gross, not that I can even do one, I just hang there feeling ridiculous.
I can’t currently have honey. What would be another substitute for that? The only sweetener I can have is Stevia. Can I just sub that? What amount would I use?
I haven’t worked with Stevia, so I’m not sure how much you would use, but i’m sure it would work as well!
How many of them would you have for a “normal” breakfast?
I’d say 2 when you eat it with some protein!
they are just GREAT!
even my BF had them for breakfast and he is quite a challenge when it comes to breakfast
Is almond butter the same thing as almond spread?
I’m not sure where you’ve seen almond spread but you would have to look at the ingredients! almonds should be the only ingredient
I’m doing a whole life challenge through my cross fit gym, which means I have to eat paleo for two months! I’ve made a few of your other desserts and love them. The problem I have with this one is the honey in it.. Unfortunately the challenge is paleo with a twist-no honey allowed! I can use stevia and have discovered coconut sugar.. Any recommendations on the amount of stevia I would need???? HELP.
i actually have no idea, i haven’t ever used stevia in recipes
These muffins are the best paleo muffins I’ve made! Seriously stunning – you wouldn’t know they were good for you 🙂 Thankyou.
Awesome!! I added zest and juice of 1 lime and couldn’t stop singing “you put the lime in the coconut” :).
I must say that my kiddos (4 & 2) prefer your paleo recipes over most. So congrats! So often kids paleo recipes are a bit too “dumbed down”. Little ones actually have quite discerning tastes and this momma knows she can count on you in a pinch. THANK YOU!
They are delicious!! Ive tried other paleo muffin recipes but this one tops them all! Really moist My boyfriend eats super unhealthy and he even likes them
Delicious! I doubled the amount of blueberries and would even add more next time. Turned out great even without muffin liners – I just greased my muffin tins with coconut oil.
I feel like I’m the only one who did something wrong when making this recipe- my muffins are grease balls. Puffed up? Yes. Delicate and flaky? In a way I never thought Paleo baked goods could manage. Eatable? I’m not sure. It’s like the things have been deep-fried. I’ll reduce the amount of almond butter and try again.
I found your blog a week or so ago and have printed up a few recipes to try. I just made this and its totally 5 star worthy…..LOVED them. So so easy too. Made them tonight for my husband and I and could believe how big they were. I got 14 out of the recipe and they were all of a decent size. Thank you and good luck with the cookbook. Mine cooked in 20 minutes perfectly.
I thought I had made a batch of these, but for some reason they disappeared…. they were that good!!! Loved this simple recipe. Need to start another batch for this weekend.
Instead of using coconut oil, can I use butter. If so, do I need to add more to compensate. If I use butter, are the muffins going to come out more dry
yes! same amount should work
This is a FAN-FRIGGIN’-TASTIC recipe!!! My boyfriend made these last night for dessert and it took everything in me not to go Cookie Monster on them. LOL!! Thanks for sharing!
Can I substitue any other ingredient for the coconut? Not a big fan of coconut, but REALLY want to make these! Thanks and love your blog!
the coconut acts as a binding agent so it may be a bit difficult but adding some chopped nuts may help it stick together better without the coconut. worth trying!
i know you hear this oftern…but these are AMAZING!!! i have made them before and today had to make them for a friend’s brunch – they were so loved that none were left over and i am now making batch number two of the day…i had a lack of coconut flakes but added pumpkin seeds for an extra crunch and instead of half a cup of blueberries I just toss in a whole pint ;o) – super yummy!
Thank you for posting these – paleomg is my go-to site for when i have no idea what i want to make…cause I kinda wanna make it all!
First recipe I have tried off your site, made them for breakfast, they are amazing! My other half is a bit mad for anything blueberry so I know he will love these as well! Printed off a ton of other recipes as well to try!
I never really comment on sites, but I had to after trying this recipe. Amazing!! My 4 yr old loved them. I used Trader Joes almond meal came out great. Thank you!!
OMG…..soooo delicious! Im not a baker, and had failed mulitple times on previous baking attempts. This is my first time making paleo muffins, and they came out sooo good!! YUMMY. My husband started gobbling them up last night….THANK YOU! and I love your website!!!
Came across this lively blog and read the entire post, then realizing this chick is cool haha. I’m so trying tho receipe tomorrow. Quick question, do you think I could exclude the shredded coconut? I hate that ish and rather deal with its oil than the actual thing?
I think you could pull that out, maybe use a little bit of flax seed to bind it like coconut would!
WOW! These are amazing. Finally found a recipe that works. I’ve failed, and wasted so many f’cking eggs, way too many times. So thank you! Had to cook them for about 25 minutes but I’m chalking that up to a generally cooler oven.
I am SO in love with your site! Starting our Crossfit Paleo challege tomorrow, and trying to plan out a month of food so I can’t cheat. This is my first attempt at paleo so I’m a super nervous. Can these be made without Honey? What would you sub in instead? Any great other snack ideas?!?!
you could use maple syrup or coconut nectar as your sweetener! i just look at snacks as smaller meals. so maker sure to have some protein in your snacks to keep you full!
Can you make these with chia egg instead?
not sure what chia-egg is….?
LOVE your blog! You are HILARIOUS & most definitely inspiring 🙂 Your chili is amazing & I’ve taken some of your cookies to my box & they were a mega hit, even my 6’3″ 150# junk food addicted hub approved to my amazement! Plan to take these muffins for our Paleo potluck this Fri.. I apologize if this has been asked & answered already, would frozen blueberries do for these? Thanks
I put too much baking powder i think cuz it puffed up then sunk like a ship. 🙁 Still tasted good though!
I’ve made these a few times and love them. Decided to adapt the recipe to hit a craving I had for carrot muffins. I nixed the almond butter, took the honey down to 1/4 cup and added a 1/4 cup each of shredded carrots, walnuts and raisins. Delicious!!
I made them in silicon muffins wrappers. They were easy to get out, but a little oily so I may take the coconut oil down to 1/4 c too.
I made these twice and although they are soo yummy they fall apart and are super moist. Any suggestions?
i’m really not sure kathy…maybe not enough coconut? not really sure
I make these muffins, a lot! I am working my way into the paleo lifestyle. Instead of the blueberries, though, I put chocolate chips, and it works perfectly. My husband and 5 year old daughter will both eat them, which is really something. Also, I sub 1/4 cup of coconut flour for the almond flour.
I’m making these right now. Never really baked before? This should be interesting
Made these last night and unfortunately I was pretty disappointed. I had really high hopes because of all the great reviews, but I’m not sure what went wrong. I followed the recipe exactly, but had to leave out the honey because I’m doing the Whole30. They were extremely dry and heavy. Would honey really make that much of a difference? I made the Sweet Potato Chai muffins w/o honey and they turned out great!!
Also, what kind of almond butter is everyone using? I used the fresh almond butter from Whole Foods which is really thick…could that be the issue?
the honey may help keep them moist, but i’m not completely sure. I use the fresh almond butter as well, so I don’t think that’s the issue. I’m sorry they didn’t turn out well lauren!
These turned out great!
15-20 minutes is WAAAAYYYYYYY off. I’ve had them in there almost 35 minutes and they’re still super wet in the middle. This is my first foray into paleo baking and I might have something wrong, but as written, this recipe is a fail.
These were easy to make and turned out great!
So I have made these muffins about 5 times. Each time they have come out a little different but taste so yummy!! Every instance though, my muffins fall in the center! Mine are very moist in the center (not sure if they should be quite so moist …still so good), but I devour them (really I mean like 4 a day :/ )
How can I keep the muffins from falling in the center?? They rise so great in the oven, but never stay.
I attempted these wonderful looking muffins last night but mine tasted more like almond butter and coconu rather than blueberry. Any suggestions?
Add more blueberries!
These are amazing! They are by far the best paleo muffins I have ever had! I made a few changes as I have cut out coconut from my diet (for now) 🙁 I subbed organic clarified butter for the oil and flaxseed for the coconut flakes. They turned out so moist and yummy, just like grain “poisoned” muffins! Thanks sooo much for the recipe!! Love your blog 🙂
I usually don’t write reviews, but WOW these muffins are delicious!!!! Moist, flavorful, and it taste like it should be something guilty.
Forgive me if this question may have already been answered but you list “almond butter” do you mean the oil type butter, not the peanut butter type? A little confused.. haha
Love your blog btw too! So funny, real, down to earth, and just normal! haha 🙂
Have a great day! Hoping to make these tomorrow for a social event on Sunday!
no the peanut butter type. you can usually find almond butter by the peanut butter or freshly grind it yourself
Thanks for the clarification on the almond butter! 🙂 Can’t wait to make these little jewels tomorrow afternoon! Yum!
I’m another homebirther!
OK, when you really think about it, I guess birth is gross. But still, it is TOTALLY EMPOWERING if you don’t let an American OB fuck it all up – like the tend to. (American maternity care is HORRIBLE! They make it all worse.)
It brought me closer to my husband & was just amazing both times I’ve done it (With midwives in attendance – not doctors.) 😀
Do you think I could sub almond flour for coconut flour?
yes but no clue measurement wise
These are amazing! Since I am unable to keep from tinkering with a recipe, I did sunbutter instead of almond, 1/2 banana instead of honey, and added 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips! So easy, so good. I will be making these again!
Btw Juli you are my hero! When I want to bake or am looking for a dinner recipe I always come to your site! Thank you for all you do!
This post is hilarious! I’m about to attempt 13.5, pray for me! Damn you Fran
I love these. I love these so hard. I accidentally forgot to add the coconut oil (forgot it in the microwave) and they were still fantastic. Crumbly, but fantastic.
One more thing. You need to tell modcloth to give a code for your readers so when we buy, you get the love. I just discovered them because of you and they should be thanking you for spreading the word.
Can you use any coconut oil?
Another great recipe from Juli, as evidenced by the fact that I had to scroll over a many day period to reach the bottom of the comments to leave another comment other people will probably never read. I used blackberries and cut the honey in half since my coconut was, unfortunately, the sweetened kind (thanks shitty grocery store). Will definitely be making these over and over! Thank you!!!
These are the best grain free muffins I’ve ever made! My 3yr old son absolutely loves them. I use grated apple instead of the blueberries and sometimes I use cashew butter in place of the almond butter. Thank you for a perfect healthy muffin recipe!
I’m new to Paleo baking, and tried this muffin recipe tonight. (Followed it exactly) The flavor is awesome, but I couldn’t get some of the batter to set. After 35-38 minutes in the oven, most of them are still about 40% wet inside. Any idea what I could have done wrong to mess them up so bad?
Hi Juli! I love your blog. I wish Icould posta picture of my epic fail of blueberry muffins. They blew up. Is there any subs for altitude? Bummedindenver.
I live at altitude so I’m not sure how I would change them.
I did it! I have been through over six recipes in search of the perfect chocolate muffin and your base was what I needed. I did everything the same; but, reduce the almond flour by about 1/4 cup and subbed equal parts flax seed and arrowroot powder. Why? Because I am hell bent on incorporating those two ingredients before the go bad in my kitchen.
My son ate three.
I am a new Paleo convert of about 3 weeks and I’m loving it. Made these muffins this morning and they are AWESOME! Thanks so much for the recipe. It’s a keeper for sure!
PS I didn’t have any coconut flakes so I just omitted them. Still awesome!
These are nothing short of amazing. I have made several of your recipes and they have all been delicious. I know you aren’t completely satisfied with your cookbook but I’m planning to order a copy for myself and one for my sis in Korea…not for the quality of the photos or paper but because I trust that any recipe I make out of there is going to be amazing. I’ve bought lots of cookbooks for the quality of the photos where the recipes were crap. I prefer the other way around. 🙂
Great! I didn’t have coc oil but they still turned out great. 16 month old ate two!
I made these last night and accidentally left out the almond flour but they still tasted amazing!
OMG indeed. Thank you for creating this amazing recipe for this Ironman triathlete who is JONESING for something sweet but still trying to cut some body fat…These will be great before my 40 mile bike tomorrow 🙂
Ok so i know this is an older post but i need help! We just started Paleo 2 weeks ago and i have never used almond flour/meal. I bought the Bob’s red mill and opened the bag and got a whif of a very funky smell. Is that normal for almond flour? or is is bad? i have tried google but everything but that comes up. Help please!!!!!
No it shouldn’t smell funny. It may smell different to you since you haven’t used it yet. Just check the expiration on it
can i use peanut butter instead of almond butter?
Sure! Just not paleo
These were delicious! I threw a banana in there, and also used coconut sugar/nectar instead of the honey (was out of honey). They melt in your mouth, and had just the right amount of sweetness. This will be my go-to muffin recipe from now on!
I made these this morning and it was soooo easy! I ate three one right after another and I had to stop so I wouldn’t become a blueberry ha ha ha. Now off to bake another treat. Thanks Juli!
I made your Blueberry Muffins and I had a problem of them sinking in the middle. They tasted good but didn’t look at all like your picture. I am new at baking Gluten free but am an avid baker so I am confused at what might have happened. Do you have any idea what I might have done wrong for them to react that way? They also wouldn’t come out of my silicone cups. They seemed really wet on the bottom. All the blueberries sunk to the bottom of each muffin. I used all the ingredients exactly as in your recipe. So even though they tasted really good I would like to be able to make them for guests too. I will be trying more of your recipes for sure. I hope you can give me some pointers on my problem with the result I got with these.
I just made these muffins and while they tasted absolutely divine, they sunk in the middle and just look terrible. I’m not sure what I did wrong, hmm. Don’t worry, they’re definitely still edible 😉
Juli, I recently discovered your blog and I’ve tried a few recipe so far. These muffins were unreal good! You can’t tell they’re paleo at all from texture or taste ! Yay;) I cut out on the honey and added chocolate chips cuz I’m a chocolate junkie.
Thanks again for all your great recipe and your awesome and funny blog;) keep it up
I’ve been eating paleo for 2 months and am now ready to venture into baking. One big question I have is about the honey. I thought all sweeteners were a no-no on the paleo diet. That is one of the reasons I started following it because I think that I am insulin resistant. Anyway, if I leave out the honey will it still hold together? Should I substitute it with another liquid?
Yes it definitely will still hold together without the honey!
Holy shizzz…this batter almost didn’t make it into the muffin tins. I stood in my kitchen, eating it with a spoon out of the mixing bowl, until I forgot they needed to be baked. These are flat out delicious!!!!
I just made these using blackberries, since that’s what I had. I cut the recipe in half because I didn’t want to waste a cup of organic almond butter on a recipe I hadn’t tried before. These muffins are awesome! I wish I hadn’t cut the recipe, although I did get 7 good size muffins! The taste and the texture are excellent! Thanks so much for posting!
The hubs refused to eat coconut flakes, any suggestions for subs?
just remove the coconut flakes, they will still hold together without them!
Is it ok if I do not have shredded coconut? I have everything else. Also, I tried a similar recipe the other day (no almond butter or baking powder) but they came out VERY oily and wet. Did I just not cook them long enough or what?
yes they should still work without shredded coconut. You really need the almond butter though.
I’ve made these twice now, and they are fantastic! I love your blog; keep up the great work!
These tasted delish BUT I had the sinking problem too. Actually I think in my case they just wouldn’t cook all the way through without the top burning (any my kids won’t touch anything slightly browned…) I will make them again only filling the cups half way possibly? Thanks for the recipe!
Possibly!! They might be too dry for some reason so try adding some coconut milk to the mixture
I eat these muffins with my eyes closed trying to savor every bite. They are so so so good. I want others to see how good they are, but I don’t want to share them! Thanks so much for the recipe!
Dear Juli, the recopy sounds great! However I am terrible at translating cups into grams… Could you please help me! Love to make these muffins. THANKS
i wish i knew, i’m sorry!
The best, very tasty and moist! Thank you for sharing the recipe =)
Curious if you use almond meal, or almond flour? I see that it says meal/flour…. I’m new and confused on a lot of this to be honest. We have both straight almond meal, and the blanched almond flour so either or doesn’t matter. Just what would be your weapon of choice?
it doesn’t matter which one you use 🙂
We were sad when blueberries went out of season because we love these…even the ones I froze (they freeze wonderfully) were gone. So I subbed maple for honey and added Enjoy Life chocolate chips…OMG. Winner. I want to rate 5 stars, but the star icons just blink on my iPad.
Holy crap balls these were awesome!! Thanks for the recipe, so glad I found your website!
Terrible. My husband is not a picky eater, and even him did not want to have more than a bite. They almond butter was overwhelming.
This was my first attempt at baking something Paleo and they were wonderful! I used frozen blueberries that were picked this summer and they turned out as planned. I think I could convince my non-paleo friends and family that these were the regular kind. Batter was yummy too out of the bowl, thanks for a great recipe!
Preggo Craving about to be satisfied! YAY!
Just made these and they didn’t puff up at all 🙁 any suggestions? I didn’t have sea salt so I just used regular table salt. Would that have caused the issue?
no definitely not. did you use the baking soda and baking powder?
These are great muffins and are my go-to recipe for gluten free ones. The eggs and almond give it a protein boost. You can get almond butter at Costo in bulk for much less.
I love these!!! My favorite Paleo snack!! I would like to know how many calories are in each muffin. Thank you!!!
Just made these and they were so great!!! I made 2 more batches right after…
For all of those looking for the calories, I calculated the nutritional facts of the main ingredients (Maranatha Almond Butter, Blueberries, Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour, 3 Large Eggs, Raw Honey and Shredded Coconut), and if you made 11 muffins, here are the facts for each:
I just made these tonight after a paleo fail with another blueberry muffin recipe and they are amazing!!!
I love how these tasted except i think i stuffed up somewhere. the mixture seemed very fluffy n whippy. So as i had run out of almond flour i added some extra coconut flour. What ever i did dint work. I made double batch as i have visitors coming on the weekend, an i used frozen blueberries as the nearest shop is over an hr away. fist of all i’m guessing it was Fahrenheit not Celsius ??and my mixture was cooking but sunk in the middle.They didnt come out whole muffins at all. the pieces still tasted yummy but ended up as more of a desert rather than a muffin. Can u help me pls im still new to Paleo and desperately want to make things i can eat and sneak into my sons lunch box for school.
yes in Fahrenheit. not sure why it would come out whippy, it shouldn’t be whippy at all
I made muffins using another recipe and they were amazing. These are tasty, however wayyyy too much almond butter! I had a feeling something was off when I was mixing the batter. My muffins have been in the oven for 25 minuteman do are still soft in the middle. I’ve baked paleo A LOT so it’s not because I don’t know what I’m doing. Next time I would cut the almond butter in half!
why do all my paleo muffins deflate 🙁
i have no clue! most of mine stay pretty plump. maybe altitude?
Hi Juli! I am dying to make these since I made your banana nut muffins last week and they were TO DIE FOR. I am all out of almond flour…do you think I can try coconut flour? I heard it absorbs more though….so I am thinking I should try less. Do you have any idea about ratio?
i have no clue what the ratio is, honestly. it’s a lot less than almond flour though. guessing about 1/4 cup, maybe
I just tried this recipe for the first time. It was a complete disaster. I just ended up with silicon moulds full of grease. Any ideas what went wrong?
No clue! It could be the oil amount in your almond butter but mine have never come out greasy
Is there something I could substitute for shredded coconut? Or do you think the recipe would be ok without it or a substitute? Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of it.
Made these last night, except I think I accidentally omitted half the almond butter. In case you were wondering, they still turned out pretty damn tasty. Anyways, thanks for the recipe! 🙂
Just made these yesterday and OH MY! I loved them! I think next time I’ll reduce honey a bit as they were plenty sweet for me and up the blueberries. Mine did sink in the middle but I think it’s just a slight adjustment for being at sea level which I can tweak next time. And I am already counting down to next time! Oh my so GOOD! Thank you!!
These are so delicious!!! I made them with chopped strawberries instead of blueberries, and I am in love. What a great base muffin recipe!! THANKS!
Amazing muffins!!! Love the fact that they are gluten free because my daughter has Celiac. Thank you!
Just made this recipe- so amazingly good! My favorite muffin recipe so far! thanks so much!
Hi Juli ! So happy I stumbled on to your website while searching for Paleo muffins. I recently made the switch from gluten free. I made these muffins last night and they were AMAZING !!! I’m impressed with myself for actually making them but more impressed with you and this recipe ! I just added a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and some lemon zest. Can’t wait to try your other recipes !!
Best muffins ever!! Just recently switched to paleo in the past month, so I bought your book last week and saw these and immediately had to make them!!! Recipes like this totally make the switch over to paleo soooo much easier!
I do these muffins all the time, but I use strawberries and leave out the coconut (because I’ve never been a fan of blueberries or coconut). I love them! I actually had someone request for me to make them these for their birthday.
Best muffins I ever had, looooooved them. Mine didn’t bump up on top like yours but I did baked them at a lower temperature and I know that can make cakes and cupcakes bake more flat on top. Thank you for sharing.
What a great recipe! Made these several times!
I absolutely love reading your recipes and rants! I HATE to cook and now that I have 3 tiny people I HAVE to feed – it makes cooking a tad bit easier when I read your blog. (Just a tad)
Had a Friday afternoon craving for some blueberry muffins and these hit the spot! Delicious! Mine took a little longer to bake (I’m sure that’s because I tried to go to town with the blueberries…) The flavor was just the right amount of sweet, and the hint of coconut was perfection. I went to take a picture of them, but they seem to have disappeared.
These were delish! I made them with frozen mixed berries so I had to cook them a little longer, but such a great breakfast on the go. I’m going to try making them without as much coconut oil the next time…as in, I ate them all and I’m making them again today. 🙂
I am going to try these, I am looking for the perfect Paleo blueberry muffin, will be back to rate these….regarding an above post , you don’t have to count calories if you eat paleo
These look delicious!! I love muffins!! But I’m wondering about the baking powder. Most of the ones I looked at have corn in the ingredients, and I am allergic to corn. Do you have a good baking powder that doesn’t have any corn, paleo friendly? Or do you make yours? If so, how? Thanks!!
you can make your own baking powder! there are lots of recipes on the internet and in paleo cookbooks!
These are wonderful. Mine came out a bit oily as well, sank in the middle. But I am going to adjust the coconut oil next time to take down the oil a bit. Taste is dead on though. It is recipes like this one that is going to make this transition to Paleo successful. Thank you for sharing this delightful recipe.
I just have to share that I made these last night and I am OBSESSED. I have to agree with Tasha that mine sank in the middle, but my oven is super wonky so I just put them back in and let them bake 10 minutes longer, which solved the sinking issue AND the oily issue. Thanks for the great recipe!
These are the best paleo muffins I have ever made. Light and fluffy not dense little hockey pucks! I made these exactly as directed but the second time I made them I added a little bit of lemon zest to complement the blueberries. I have a question, how necessary is it to use raw honey in a recipe that will be cooked or baked? Thanks for posting such great recipes 🙂
Can I do these without the unsweetened coconut? I am ok with the flavor of coconut, but I can’t stand the texture. Would it mess up the texture if omitted?
Does anyone know the calorie count per muffin
Are there any substitutes for the coconut oil (besides butter) and shredded coconut? I have a severe, life threatening allergy to it. Thanks!!
You can leave the shredded coconut out. For the coconut oil, you can try 1/3 c unsweetened applesauce. Haven’t tried it that way, but that’s a common oil substitute for baking.
I have these babies in the oven now
I have these babies in the oven now
I have these babies in the oven now and just purchased two of your cookbooks!! We live and breathe Paleo in this house. Your awesome and witty.
These. Are. Amazing. Seriously. Like, too good.
Thank you for the recipe!
Well… I don’t know what those exercise moves are that everyones talking about, shoot, I can’t even do a cartwheel!! I kinda suck. Anywho, been Paleo for about 5 weeks now, and I can’t wait to do some curls with a muffin in each fist! Yeah… they look THAT GOOD!! 🙂
I have to admit – I was SUPER skeptical at first… I’ve followed a clean “paleo” style diet for YEARS, and I’ve tried A LOT of paleo baked goods recipes and many times they flop. Either they are too sweet, taste too much like almond flour or coconut flour – or they are just straight up weird… – these ones are not your average paleo muffins. These are FANTASTIC! I’m always looking for easy ways to make sure I eat enough (crossfitter + super clean diet = hungry/ALWAYS needing to cook) and as a Chiropractic student time is limited! Thank you so much for these – I LOVE THEM! Way to go! You rock!
Also – I added a pinch of cardamom and nutmeg – yum!!!
These are amazing.
Nutritional facts by chance?
Can I use regular butter instead of almond butter?
I am new to Paleo. Can this recipe be doubled? Made your breakfast casserole this morning. My daughter and I liked it a lot!
definitely! You can freeze them also.
tried the recipient and my muffins collapsed in the middle!:( not sure what I’m doing wrong? 🙁
Man I’m sorry they collapsed… not sure what went wrong?!?!
OMGGGGGGG THESE ARE AMAZING!!!! Your recipes rule. Thank you 😉 pregnant with first trimester morning sickness and these hit the spot
Hi there! I haven’t tried these yet but they look amazing! I can’t wait! I do have a question though. Can I use coconut flour in place of the almond meal? And if so, would it be a 1:1 ratio?
no, not at all. coconut flour is completely different
Loved these! Mixed the batter with frozen blueberries and then left it out on the counter overnight (I know, I know…. but the eggs!). Baked it quickly in the morning while getting ready for the day, school, etc. Was ready in plenty of time and a great addition to our breakfast! Used maple syrup instead of honey for our Low FODMAPers
awesome, glad you liked them!
Is there a substitution for almond flour? I have a nut allergy and I can’t eat wheat (but it doesn’t necessarily have to be paelo). Thank you!
not for this exact recipe, but i have many nut free muffins on my site!
Do you know the calories in one serving or the nutritional facts ?
OMG! Just made these muffins and they are SO amazing. Would it be wrong to have 3 for breakfast?
All your recipes are favorites and feed my family every week. Thank you for sharing!
Will these turn out without the almond butter? I completely forgot to put this in. They are in muffin tin cups right now, not baked yet.
not sure, i’ve only made them the way the recipe is written. it may, though! just will probably be a tad different
Thanks for replying! I ended up taking them out of the muffin cups and adding in 1/2c almond butter (that’s all i had in fridge) and they turned out AMAZING. I also made them with frozen blueberries and this was fine as well. Will be making more today as I can see these will be gone fast. Thank you for your recipes – I have tried many and pretty much all of them have turned out awesome and super yummy. I am a newbie to the Paleo diet and your recipes make it easy. I will be getting your recipe book for Christmas 🙂
hi,I am trying to make this recipe, but I can’t use honey, can Sub anything else?,I do low carb to stay off my diabetes meds, it works for me, but honey is not good for me.thanks
i don’t know much about diabetes so i’m not sure what sweetener you could use, but you could definitely use a different sweetener that is lower carb
Delicious!! And holy crap they’re filling!
is it okay to use frozen blueberries instead?
This may be a silly question that’s already been answered – what is the consistency of these supposed to end up like? I have made them twice and they always end up not cake-like, like most muffins, with a somewhat wet consistency in the middle. They’re delicious – i just want to make sure i’m not undercooking them!
sounds like they aren’t cooked through all the way because they should not be wet at all
I had the same issue but I think it’s because I used almond flour instead & assumed measurements would be the same. I think I need to add more for binding. They’re yummy tho so will try again!
I was very pleased with this recipe 😀 Ty so much for sharing too. I was tempted to add a few more blueberries and they were organic frozen so i added a little more cook time which made them a little toastier looking but 100% Yummo!!! i do drizzle a little honey and a few tiny grains of salt. 2 pinches for next time on salt 😛 <3 this recipe! & cant wait to try other fruit and toppings or nuts….choc chips 😀
I made these muffins they were terrible. So oily they were dripping. 1 cup of butter plus the coconut oil made them so wet i had to throw them away.
so sorry to hear you had an issue, elyse! i use freshly ground almond butter which doesn’t have the excess oil in it. that may have caused the issue for you. that’s my best guess since i wasn’t in your kitchen or able to see the products you used
made these today and wonder why they didn’t cook through?
I did use a metal pan without liners, and baked at 350 for 17 min, then added 5 more.
The top is golden and done, but the inside is molten. I also added closer to 3/4 cup fresh blueberries.
Do you think my baking powder is old, or more would help next time?
I’m eating them with a spoon anyway, and they are delicious…
it could definitely be the baking powder if they didn’t cook through and rise
This happened to me, too! I was looking forward to muffins that would ‘fluff up and look aforable’ But they all have sunken holes and are uncooked in the middle 🙁 all of my ingredients were bought today so I’m not sure where I went wrong. Although undercooked, still delicious!
Needed a blueberry muffin recipe today and these fit the bill! Very yummy. Used maple syrup instead of honey, grape seed oil instead of coconut oil (just lazy), and added more blueberries…would add a cup next time. I also added almond extract but that was a waste, no taste at all. Might try to sub oil with applesauce next time as the almond butter should provide enough fat to the recipe.
Mine rose wonderfully and did not fall.
I would suggest that if people are not using super fine grind almond flour to regrind it. Happily the Kirkland brand from Costco s perfect, better than what they used to carry (here in Canada). I found that using a coarser grind led to wet, falling baked goods.
This made 12 large muffins!
OMG. I have been craving a muffin or something like this for a while and these were totally was the best. I added quite a bit more blue berries because well, that’s just me. ????????♀️ Like 3 handfulls……. I have a problem. ????????
Hi! These look so yummy. What’s the nutritional information of 1 muffin?
no idea, but you could easily plug that information into a nutritional calculator online to figure that information out!
